March Slice of Life Story Challenge: Day 13 of 31 / Tooth


A tooth a tooth a tooth! 
Is poking through your little gum.
Welcome to the world of teeth. 
Welcome to carrots. 
Welcome to cashews. 
Welcome to hamburgers. 
Welcome to broccoli. 
Welcome to apples 
Fresh from the tree
Or dipped in caramel. 
Welcome to popcorn 
Sitting at the movies 
Buttery and crunchy perfect. 
This teeny tiny tip of a tooth
Means you're becoming a boy
With likes and dislikes 
Who makes faces at spinach 
And adores oranges. 


  1. Hooray! Welcome to the next phase!!!

  2. Precious poem about the tiny tooth. I remember well the feel of the sharp bump. It was usually welcomed after a few long nights. I hope this was an easy break through.

  3. Beautifully written, Anna. Hurrah for this, and you're right, it is the beginning...
